How do I add formatted text to my GauchoSpace site?

If you are adding large amounts of formatted text to your course site, it is recommended to use a Label and not the "Summary" area of your weekly sections. The Label resource handles formatted text much better than the Summary, and is also easily re-positioned using drag-and-drop, if needed.

To add a label:

  1. Log in to GauchoSpace and enter your course site.
  2. Click Turn editing on.
  3. Find the week/topic where you would like to add the label and click Add an activity or resource.

  4. Under Resources, choose Label and click Add.
  5. Type in the Label's text. Format using the rich-text editor buttons.
  6. Click Save and return to course.

To paste formatted text into your label, it is recommended to use the "Paste Special" function to retain all formatting.

To "Paste Special":

  1. Within the label, click the "Paste Special" button in the text editor toolbar.

  2. Paste your content in the pop-up window. Make sure to select the correct source you are pasting from.

  3. Click Complete Paste.
  4. Your text will be pasted with the formatting retained. Click Save changes.
